Boateng urged to leave Bayern for PSG
Boateng has been heavily tipped to leave the Bundesliga champions in recent weeks, with Manchester United said to have been interested before the window for signings for Premier League clubs closed on Thursday.
“There was no commitment from the club for him. Despite his injury problems, for me, he’s one of the best in the league.
“If I were his advisor, I would advise him to move to Paris, where he’s welcome and would be able to win the Champions League.”
The striker’s agent said in May that he wanted a new challenge and a move to Real Madrid was mooted, although it is looking increasingly likely Lewandowski will stay at the Allianz Arena.
Effenberg, though, thinks it is a risk to start the season with a player who openly wants to leave.
“If a player desperately wants to go, you have to let him,” said the former Germany star.
“Taking a dissatisfied player into the new season is risky.”
